Chateau Pavie Macquin Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2014

Critical Acclaim: 97 pts James Suckling; 96 pts Vinous; 95 pts Wine Enthusiast; 94 pts Wine Spectator; 92 pts Jeb Dunnuck. 

"This is a magnificent Pavie with full body and polished and integrated tannins. Shows a level of precision and balance that is always unexpected. Long and harmonious. Hard now to drink now, but will reward those with long-term patience."- James Suckling. 

"The 2014 Pavie-Macquin is superb. Deep, powerful and creamy, the 2014 possesses tremendous richness from start to finish. Today, the 2014 appears to be going through a period of transition, as the aromatics are not especially open, but a few more years in bottle should do the trick. I have always admired the 2014's balance, as I do once again today. The 2014 is a real dark horse and one of the real gems in this vertical."- Vinous. 

"Barrel Sample. The tannins cut firmly into the fruit of this impressive wine. They give a dense, dry edge to the ripe berries and fresh acidity. The effect is a juicy wine that has a tough edge. This will take time to develop."- Wine Enthusiast. 

"The plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit is very aromatic, carrying a glossy sheen as this glides along, picking up subtle anise, alder and tobacco notes slowly but steadily through the finish. A graphite edge is buried deep. This should age gracefully thanks to the purity and balance. Best from 2022 through 2032."- Wine Spectator. 

"Coming from two parcels planted on the upper plateau, with a terroir like Troplong-Mondot, the 2014 Château Pavie Macquin is more backward than the 2015 (which is expected) and offers a masculine, firm, edgy style as well as lots of black cherry and currant fruits intermixed with smoked herbs, scorched earth and lots of minerality. This medium to full-bodied 2014 has good concentration, high, integrated acidity, and an age-worthy, classic style that needs 5-6 years of bottle age. It should have three decades of overall longevity."- Jeb Dunnuck. 

Varietal: 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.
